    I have made this like 4 times now. it is so delicious! I made the exact recipe except for the heavy cream and I used 2% milk instead and it was still delicious.
    Really good warming soup! The family liked it…

    Really good flavor! Had to use 2% milk (no cream) but it was still delicious-just not as thick or fattening!😉

    it is very tasty. i didn't have any wine but tasted great without.

    It was pretty good, but a little weird. I would add egg noodles, do less carrots and a little more celery, swap the half and half for milk, and take a lot of the oil out. Overall, the flavors were amazing! It was just a little hard on the stomach and pretty oily

    This soup is very flavorful! I added red potatoes close to the end of the cooking time and it is delicious.

    I really enjoy this soup. I've made it several times. I follow the recipe exactly, except that I add parsnips and this time I added some turnip. It really is a comforting soup.

    It’s very “spicy” like a lot of herbs are added. Tastes alright. Did freeze well, but I wouldn’t make it again

    Excellent soup. The herbs and spices make the dish so don’t skimp.
    It is really delicious. I added a pack of gnocci and it was heaven. The spices make this soup so special.

    I have made this soup at least 10 times and it is one of my all-time favorites. A staple in our home. I’ve shared it with my whole family and they regularly request it. Savory and perfectly delicious!!

    Yum! Would make it again. I modified it a lot but the excellent dea of using the roux and then cream made it very comforting and delicious.

    Very tasty. I opted to throw in some potatoes at the end for myself and my teens. My husband threw in some avocado instead! Very good.
